Where does the new UX sit within the Lexus range?

When an object is seen in isolation, it can be difficult to gauge exactly how big – or small – that object really is. That’s because our perception of size is based on being able to compare it with familiar objects.

The Lexus UX is positioned as the smallest and most urban-friendly model in our crossover range

With that in mind, we thought it would be helpful to offer some comparative data of Lexus UX dimensions in relation to the existing NX and RX models.

As you can see from the table below, the Lexus UX is positioned as the smallest and most urban-friendly model in our crossover range. It is more compact than the mid-size NX, which in turn is smaller than the full-size RX.

This hierarchy is also reflected in engine capacity, where the Lexus UX will be equipped with 2.0-litre four-cylinder engines – petrol and self-charging hybrid – compared to the 2.5-litre four-cylinder hybrid of the NX and 3.5-litre V6 hybrid powering the RX.
